My family used to use the old Coleman white gas stoves and lantern. ...snip

Ahhh.... the smell of white gas and filling the lanterns at sunset.
The hisssss of the lantern while we played cards and board games.
Bed time: Watching from my bunk, Dad turned town the lantern at bit, checked on my younger brother and sister in their bunks, and then turned off the lantern and crawled into his bunk as the room darkened.
The hisss slowly quieted and the room gradually grew ever dimmer, dimmer. My eyes strained to see the table, chairs, ice box I knew were there in our one-room cabin but they slowly faded with the dimming light....
That old stuff brings back lots of memories. Lots of GOOD memories.
